We just started a new Nostalgic Notions series on Virtual Bastion where Cary plays games from Rare Replay! The first episode is Jetpac from 1983!
Nostalgic Notions is a series where we play about 15 minutes of various retro games. It’s a good way to check out a bunch of old games in a short span of time!
A couple weeks ago, I wrote about my plans for Quackville, my island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. After hours of terraforming and painstakingly attempting to make my plans a reality, my semi-Disney-inspired island is now complete, including a condensed version of Main Street USA, Frontierland, Adventureland, New Orleans Square, and Tom Sawyer Island on the left and a three-tier residential area and zen garden on the right. If you’d like to see a tour of my island and house, you can find the video below: Continue reading New Horizons Island and House Tour
Not too long ago over on Virtual Bastion, I wrote about how I finally got a 5-star rating in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. With that milestone now out of the way, I decided that my next goal was to terraform the island of my dreams. After watching a whole bunch of island tours on YouTube and general brainstorming, I had a pretty solid idea of what I wanted to do. But before I could get started…I spent several hours painstakingly drawing lines all over my island in order to create a very helpful grid, followed by a detailed map on Photoshop. Because I’m kind of obsessive like that. Continue reading I’ve Got Big Plans for Quackville
Good day, everyone! I recently got a copy of Super Mario Maker 2 and have been spending many hours playing through all kinds of cool and creative stages created by fellow Mario fans all across the globe. Which got me thinking…it could be really cool to record your Mario Maker stages on our Virtual Bastion YouTube channel for the whole world to see! If you’re interested, keep reading below for the details. Continue reading Want to See Your Super Mario Maker 2 Levels on YouTube?
My blog is now seven years old, folks! How cool is that? I had hoped that such a lucky number would mean good luck, and it pretty much did, as a lot of nifty neato things happened this year! Before we get to the good stuff, let’s review my current stats. Hmm, let’s see here…subscribers went up from 295 to 349, and total views has increased from 24,723 to 29,061. Mm-kay. My best day continues to be December 9, 2012 with 208 views.
I’m super happy my subscribers and views have increased this past year. (And it’s all thanks to you guys!) But the fact that my blog’s best day was 4.5 years ago makes me cry on the inside a little. Continue reading The Blog’s a Lucky Seven Years Old
It was four years ago that I teamed up with Hatm0nster and Cary (from Recollections of Play) to create the collaborative gaming community known as United We Game. It was here that viewpoints could be exchanged and opinions respected, as in the end, we are all a community, a community of unique individuals united by a singular passion. Over the years, we have grown and have even expanded into Youtube to share our love of gaming in another medium with an even larger audience.
It’s time we took the next step. Continue reading Virtual Bastion is Coming
